9 Still no metacity gtk+ gtk.css type support :(
Metacity supports two theme types - GTK+ (gtk.css) and Metacity (metacity-theme-x.xml).

8 It is better but the dark is still too dark. If you don't have time to do a lighter dark. Can you make a white glow around the border of the window in focus? When there are several overlapping dark windows, even with the close buttons in color, it is hard to figure out the various windows. When there is only one or two windows on the desktop, this theme does indeed looks nice.

9 Great theme.

There's something weird going on with the firefox buttons though.
The distance between the outmost (close) buttons and the other two (maximize, minimize) seems off: https://i.imgur.com/z0MEpW0.png
My buttons are on the left side, but this doesn't seem to make problems with other GTK apps like nautilus or evince.

from my settings.ini:

gtk-theme-name=Skeuos-Grey-Dark
gtk-icon-theme-name=WhiteSur-dark
gtk-font-name=Roboto 12
gtk-cursor-theme-name=macOSBigSurcursor
gtk-cursor-theme-size=0
gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_BOTH
gtk-toolbar-icon-size=GTK_ICON_SIZE_LARGE_TOOLBAR
gtk-button-images=1
gtk-menu-images=1
gtk-decoration-layout=close,maximize,minimize:menu

Hope that helps.

Hi! thanks for the feedback. Firefox is not too happy about the theme, not sure why. I don't have that issue with the buttons on the right side but it does show minor differences with the animations. I'll take a look and try to fix it soon ;)

9 Finally an up-to-date skeuomorphic theme :)
If it would use regular icons everywhere it would be perfect!
But this is easily fixed by adding "* { -gtk-icon-style: regular; }" to the gtk.css files.

[20201104, Skeuos-Blue-Light variant] Looks great. I'm normally not super fond of themes that change appearance between focussed and unfocussed windows, but I really get what you're trying to do with flat vs. intuitively usable (skeumophic, non-flat, whatever) and I like it so far. Could you show gtk3-widget-factory in the screenshots, please? Idea, take it as you wish: I feel that the area contrast isn't quite "there" yet between buttons and backgrounds, between header/titlebars and content, and especially between listbox contents and headers. Perhaps the general lightness could be made less glaringly white (75-85%), and the overall darkness of the dark theme be made correspondingly less pitch black (15-25%)? I feel that this could be a way to improve area contrast a bit, and it doesn't have to come at the expense of text contrast. Use case: laptop, light theme user for font legibility, daytime + nighttime use, and "glare shock" avoidance when switching between a styled dark window and unavoidably non-styled things like web pages that tend to be black text on white. In dim conditions, I dial the backlight down. A light variant that isn't too glaring seems to really help me a lot there!
